Blu Hair Salon Pasadena Area Tips on How to Choose the Right Hair Color – Part 2

 

(Continued from: “Blu Hair Salon Pasadena Area Tips on How to Choose the Right Hair Color – Part 1“)

In Part 1 of this article series, we discussed some important questions that your Blu Salon Pasadena area hair stylist will ask when you consult with her about changing the color of your hair. At the end of that article, we made reference to two color categories that hair stylists use to determine which hair color(s) are going to look the best on you. These color categories have to do with the natural color of your skin tone, eyes, and hair, and are represented by the terms “cool” and “warm.” In this article, we’ll describe the “cool” and “warm” individual, discuss the best hair colors that look the best on you, and point out which colors you should avoid.

 

Blu Salon Pasadena’s Description of the “Cool” Individual

 

Skin tone

Cool skin tones range in color from pale, with pink or minimal undertones; to medium, with pink, golden, or minimal cheek color; to very dark brown. So-called true olive is also considered a “cool” skin tone.

 

Eye color

Cool individuals have eye colors in the following color range: black-brown; dark brown; dark blue, gray-blue; and hazel, with blue or white-gray flecks.

 

Hair color

Natural hair colors of the cool individual include blue-black, dark brown, medium ash blond, and golden blond.

 

The best “cool” hair colors

If your Blu Salon Pasadena area hair stylist has determined that you have the skin tone, eye and hair color of a “cool” individual, she will recommend the following hair colors for you: blue-red hair shades, blue-black, ash browns, and blonds in shades ranging from mink to platinum. The hair colors your Blu Salon Pasadena area hair stylist will steer you away from include such “warm” hair colors as gold, yellow, red, and bronze.

 

Blu Salon Pasadena Area’s Description of the “Warm” Individual

 

Skin tone

“Warm” individuals are identifiable by the following skin tones: pale, with gold or peach undertones; brown, with pink or gold undertones; freckled; and red or ruddy.

 

Eye color

Natural eye colors of the warm individual include golden brown; green; green-blue; turquoise; and hazel, with gold or brown flecks.

 

Hair color

Deep brown, with gold or red highlights; red; strawberry blond; gray-yellow; and golden blond are all hair colors that are found naturally in the “warm” individual.

 

The best “warm” hair colors

If you are a “warm” individual, then you’ll look best with hair in shades of dark, warm browns; chestnut or golden browns; or auburn. Your Blu Hair Salon Pasadena area hair stylist will recommend that you avoid cool hair colors that have a blue, violet, beige or ash base.

 

Blu Hair Salon Pasadena area Can Help If You Still Can’t Decide

 

Your Blu Hair Salon Pasadena area hair stylist may need more input to determine your color type, for example, if you have skin problems such as rosacea or you have a strong tan. In cases like these, the colors in your wardrobe can help her determine whether you are a cool or warm individual. If you look good in greens, blues, and violets, then you are probably a cool type. Warm types look best in yellow, orange, and red.

 

An in-depth consultation with your Blu Hair Salon Pasadena area hair stylist is the best way to determine whether you are a “cool” or “warm” individual and, from there, the hair colors that will bring out your best features. Call us today at 626.294.9067 to schedule an appointment.
